The Mobile Veterans Support Unit grant provides funding to an eligible veteran-owned and focused organization, experienced in serving military veterans, for the provision of services to all military veterans in rural Colorado areas who have experienced homelessness and/or are without the ability to access essential services.
The Mobile Veterans Support Unit grant is a two-year competitive grant opportunity to provide services to military veterans of any discharge status.
Colorado Senate Bill 21-032, signed into law on June 23, 2021, to establish the Mobile Veterans Support Unit grant, administered through the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). This legislation came from a gap in support for military veterans, of any discharge status, to access transportation, resources and housing in rural Colorado areas.
